Default Hewlett-Packard Spied on Writers in Leaks

Damon Darlin

The California attorney general’s investigation into the purloining of private phone records by agents of Hewlett-Packard has revealed that the monitoring effort began earlier than previously indicated and included journalists as targets.

The targets included nine journalists who have covered Hewlett-Packard, including one from The New York Times, the company said.

The company said this week that its board had hired private investigators to identify directors leaking information to the press and that those investigators had posed as board members — a technique known as pretexting — to gain access to their personal phone records.

In acknowledging Thursday that journalists’ records had also been obtained, the company said it was apologizing to each one. “H.P. is dismayed that the phone records of journalists were accessed without their knowledge,” a company spokesman, Michael Moeller, said.

In an interview Thursday about the state’s criminal investigation of the Hewlett-Packard matter, Attorney General Bill Lockyer said, “A crime was committed.”

Some top execs are getting ye olde boot in the bum for that stuff.

Copyright means the copy of the CD/DVD burned with no errors.

I will never spend a another dime on content that I canít use the way I please. If I canít copy it to my hard drive and play it using the devices I want, when and where I want, I wonít be buying it. Period. They can all take their DRM, broadcast flags, rootkits, and Compact Discs that arenít really compact discs and shove them up their bottom-lines.
